We have been to several Frank Loyd Wright houses. This docent was great. We learned several things we did not know about Mr. Wright and everyone was friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend this house to everyone, a must see.

A must for the Frank Lloyd Wright fan. Good relocation of the house and restoration work. Of course some interesting features like all FLW buildings.

I’m fairly certain this is the only remaining Frank Lloyd Wright structure in Oregon. It’s a nice family home and beautifully restored
